Radio Sport's Top 15 Sporting Moments returns for 2019 as Jason Pine counts down the biggest sports stories of the year.

For moment Number 12, Jason looks at the 2019 Ashes Test series between England and Australia. The 2019 Ashes was one of the most anticipated cricket series in recent memory.

Steve Smith and David Warner were making their return to Test cricket following a one-year ban for the ball tampering scandal, and England were fresh off a win at the Cricket World Cup.
Australia were defending the urn and looking to become the first Aussie side to win an Ashes series on English soil since 2001.
These five Tests would also be the first in the the ICC's new Test Championship competition, in which every game carried valuable points.
